An unmissable journey where skin becomes canvas, faces melt and music will enrapture eardrums from the most unlikely of places.
Tattooing will be reconfigured into music via flesh during a ritual by Servadio; French artist Olivier de Sagazan will disfigure and transform his face with paint and clay in a horrifyingly-transfixing meditation exploring the animal inside us all; artist Nick Tee will use pain and endurance to interrogate and unpick the prickliest of issues currently dividing populations across the planet; DJ and living-icon Dahc Dermur VIII will unleash his unique DJ-set that has enraptured audiences and made him a visionary and muse to the most aesthete and the Italian drummer, composer and musical experimentalist, Matteo Vallicelli, (active in Soft Moon, Smart Cops, Death Index) will be the bonding agent of it all through an abstract synth live set.
▌▌OLIVIER DE SAGAZAN
Olivier de Sagazan is a painter, sculptor, and performer. He has since made over 100 performances in USA, China, India and Europe. In his existential performative series « Transfiguration », he builds layers of clay and paints on his own face to transform, disfigure his own figure, revealing a half human and half animal, who is seeking to understand his real nature. At once disquieting and deeply moving, this new body of work reveals the puppets and the puppeteer that we have inside of us.
